    On This Date in Iowa Weather History (courtesy of the NWS): 1962: A late blast of bitter cold invaded Iowa bringing subzero temperatures across the entire state. Reported morning low temperatures included -36 F at Sibley, -35 F at Inwood, -34 F at Le Mars and Rock Rapids, -29 F at Waterloo, -23 F at Atlantic, Carroll, and Woodward, -21 F at Winterset, and -15 F at Mount Ayr and Shenandoah. Even during the afternoon the temperature failed to climb above zero degrees at the Des Moines airport making this the latest date of the year on which that has ever occurred at that location. Temperatures would plummet even further in many areas the following morning, breaking numerous local and statewide March low temperature records.
